AnandTech on Wine Gaming

December 31st, 2009 by Crusader

AnandTech has posted an article examining the state of running modern Windows-native games in Linux via Wine and its derivatives:

What’s the answer to the initial question, “Is Linux ready for gaming?” As you probably expected, the answer is both yes and no. If you’re looking for an out-of-box solution for running older games, Linux is a decent alternative to Windows. The longer a game has been around, and the more popular the game, the better the odds that someone has already taken the time to get it working properly under one of the Wine projects.

    It would have been nice if they talked about non-Wine gaming and mentioned some good native Linux games.

    They keep shooting their foot when asking the same question of whether a title is ready for general “Linux.” They should point to one specific vendor or specification with the same question, is this title ready for RedHat 12 or Mint 6?
